Hmm…where to sit for Thanksgiving dinner? Welcome guests to the table with these fall-colored handmade place settings. (Thanks to Shauna from Shwin&Shwin for sharing!)
We love Thanksgiving around here–not just a little but a LOT! The kids love to get involved any way they can, so what better way than to let them make the place settings for Thanksgiving dinner?
Here’s a simple and fun way to keep kids entertained while you’re busy in the kitchen.
- pinecones (1 per person)
- paper clips
- construction paper
First, gather up your supplies. We used pine cones the kids gathered up outside (another fun way to keep them busy). For the paper clips, we went with fall-colored hues of orange and yellow–but any paper clip will do.
Then have the kids add some glue to the top of the pinecone, and stick a paper clip to the top.
